      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Mixture rate for Trimec and 2 - 4 - D?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the rough estimate mixture rates for 2 4 D and Trimec? I use a pull behind 15 gallon sprayer. This will be for a big wide open lawn area about 3 acres. Thanks!

8 ounces per gallon seems like alot. The broadleaf i use, when using a backpack sprayer for spot spraying, I use 1oz. herbicide/gallon of water.

I would suggest filling your sprayer up with water, drive around your lawn and spray the water out to get an idea of square footage that you can cover with a full tank.

After you figure out how many square feet you spray, check the label and add the amount needed.

Example...I cover 1 acre with my 24 gallon broadcast sprayer (43,560 ft2). The product I use says to apply at 1.1 to 1.6 oz/1000ft2, I apply at 1.1 oz/1000ft2 so I use 48 ounces of hebicide in my sprayer.

Hope this helps.

The variables are huge depending on the tips and pressures you are running on your sprayer. Always follow the lable directions first of all. Most 2-4-D Products are 1.5- 2 oz per gallon. I spray 200 gallons with 2.5 gallons of material and get 7 acres of coverage. I run at 4.5 mph 15psi using tjet stainless steel tips. Your sprayer manual should be able to tell you the coverages and tip size your sprayer has. Then you need to factor in the mixture rates for the product you're using to calibrate your sprayer.

Hotrod and Moose are dead on.

Just for another example, I use 56 oz of chemical in 12 gallons of water, but I cover 52k sq ft. Basically running at about 1 oz per 1000 sq ft by the time you count for overlap.

It's not how many gallons you're using, but how many sq ft you're covering with the gallons used.

Wish I had a $ for every time I misspoke or looked at the wrong part of a chemical label over the past 27 years and that's part of my profession! That's about the same 2,4-D concentration I used in my old pull type squeeze pump sprayer which worked great on dandelions in the lawn. In the new sprayer on the 4 wheeler I run about 16 oz. - 32 oz per 15 gals. of water, depending on what I'm trying to kill. It runs 15 gal./acre at 5 mph with the nozzles I have in it now so it keeps the farmer math simple.

Happy Birthday Boilerguy! Always enjoy your posts.
